One thing that most sufferes agree on is that a yeast infection can be agonizing. The burning and itching are unbearable and can really make you feel miserable. The chances are you will not be sure what to do and you may have have heard that over-the-counter products and prescription medications only provide temporary relief, which, sadly,  is true.

In fact, many of these medications can actually exacerbate the situation over time. If you spend a lot of time online, then you may also have heard that Candida can be cured through natural or holistic measures. If so, you have probably wondered exactly how these remedies work. Well, there are several excellent, and highly effective natural yeast infection cures which are designed to provide comfort from the burning sensation and other complications.

When trying to cure any kind of Candida infection you need to address the symptoms before you can cure the illness. Providing relief and clearing up your skin condition is actually just the first step. But, like may treatments, the first step is an important one because once you have the complications under control, you can then focus on the long term solution.

Luckily, there are several natural yeast infection cures which use natural ingredients and, best of all, most of the ingredients needed for these remedies are probably already in your cupboards. Whatever products you don’t have to hand  should be easy to find at a natural food store or, of course, online.

One of the most commonly used natural yeast infection cures involves the use of plain yogurt. You may already know that yogurt contains bacteria and has long been credited with its immune system support. One of the nice things about this treatment is that it is equally as effective when used externally as it is when taken internally. When using this treatment, plain yogurt with no additives must be used – no strawberry then! Why avoid flavored yogurts? Well, its because they contain sugar and the yeast in the infection actually feeds off sugar.

Garlic is also considered to be a highly affective natural yeast infection cure. Its also very easy to administer – simply take a garlic clove orally. Taking cloves is also effective but can be unpleasant due to the odor so you may want to crush the clove and wash it down with some water. You can also find garlic tabs at most local natural food store or online. These are, obviously, easier to work with and I recommend them. However, it is important to make sure that the garlic tabs are natural – always check the packaging.  Additionally, garlic provides excellent health benefits.

Another very effective natural yeast infection cures is apple cider vinegar. It has long been beileved that this natural by-product is helpful with weight loss but these days a growing number of people consider apple cider vinegar as being able to provide comfort from Candida symptoms when used orally or externally.

Other products used for holistic treatments include honey and hydrogen peroxide. Honey, as well as being very tasty,  is a powerful antioxidant and has the ability to heal wounds.

These are just a few of the many natural yeast infection cures that are both effective and easily available and all of these remedies are designed to provide comfort from the symptoms associated with a recurring yeast infection. For a long-term fix, however, you will probably need to make dietary and lifestyle changes.

Home Remedy For Yeast Infection

wpid-7ca575fe-0b43-40a4-bde2-714841debb8c.jpg

You will find many natural remedies for yeast infections in online sites and printed publications so much so that you will not run out of options. These remedies range from oral supplements and topical applications to vaginal and anal suppositories. With so many choices, the question then is: What makes for a good home remedy for yeast infection?

Safe Ingredients

In any home remedy for a yeast infection, safety is always the primary concern. You want your yeast infection, be it on your mouth or on your genital area, to be treated for good instead of being worsened by another health issue. You can end up with multiple illnesses when you were just trying to deal with just one in the first place.For example, boric acid was once thought to be a safe ingredient for vaginal suppositories and douches. Recent evidence, however, suggests otherwise because of the high risks for possible side effects especially when boric acid is used too much as a topical application, ingested accidentally or used incorrectly. Toxicity results in nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, dermatitis, kidney damage and even circulatory system failure.There are many ways to determine if the ingredients in home remedy yeast infections are safe where you are concerned. First, apply a few drops or rub the paste on a small part of your wrist, wait for a few minutes and then observe your skin’s reaction. If there are no allergic reactions like redness and swelling, then it is safe for your use.Second, look back at your medical history. If you have a history of allergic reactions to one of the ingredients, then you are most likely to experience allergies with the natural yeast infection remedy as well.For example, you may be allergic to dairy products including milk and yogurt. You must then avoid using yogurt as a natural yeast infection treatment. If you are not allergic, you are in luck because yogurt is an effective remedy – eat more by adding to your dishes and desserts, use as a suppository by soaking a tampon in it, and as a douche mixture.The good news is that most natural remedies for yeast infections are considered safe for men and women of all ages.

We can mention the following as the best treatments:

• Garlic
• Yogurt
• Herbs like basil, thyme, goldenseal and sage
• Oils like coconut oil, oregano oil and tea tree oil
• Apple cider vinegar and white distilled vinegar
• Gentian violet

Easy to Prepare and Use

The natural remedy for yeast infection should also be easy to prepare and use. You are already suffering through the symptoms like itchiness, burning and soreness that making complicated yeast infection remedies just will not cut it.The good news is that most, if not all, natural yeast infection remedies are easy to prepare and to use right in the comfort of your own home. You don’t even have to own complex equipment and expensive materials since everything is in your pantry, refrigerator and medicine cabinet.For example, suppositories usually require just a gauze bandage (garlic) or a tampon (yogurt) while tea preparation requires a kettle, water and the leaves. These will then be inserted into the vagina, consumed by drinking, or used as a genital wash.
